usgs San Francisco City Hall — For our #TBT we're sharing a photo from San Francisco City Hall after the Great San Francisco Earthquake on April 18, 1906 (9 days from now...and, of course, almost 109 years earlier). After the earthquake and fires, the building was reconstructed with a new design and slightly smaller footprint. After the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake the building was retrofitted with a seismic base isolation system which essentially helps separate the main building from the substructure below it, using flexible rubber bearings or pads, in order to absorb much of the shaking from an earthquake rather than that motion moving upwards into the building itself. This doesn't make the building "earthquake proof" but it can significantly lower the amount of damage.

You can learn more about about earthquakes and earthquake preparedness at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/

jamessmale I'm coming to the end of my first degree and it's causing me to reflect on the past few years. There's been ups and downs but all in all I have had a fantastic time and I'll sorry to see the back of it. I would like to thank my beautiful girlfriend for all the support she has given me over the past 2 and a half years, I don't think I would be where I am today without her. I love you @crizzelward #university #degree #geography #naturalhazards #reflection #graduatingsoon #girlfriend #love #her 1mon

pnsn1 Today marks the 4th anniversary of the 2011 Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. On March 11, 2011, an earthquake of magnitude 9.0 occurred in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Japan's Tohoku region. The catastrophic tsunami triggered by this earthquake spread across the entire eastern coast of Japan, and throughout the #PacificOcean, killed thousands of people.
Across the Pacific Ocean, residents of the #PacificNorthwest are living in a region that has a similar tectonic setting to that of Japan. An earthquake and tsunami of the same size — or greater — could strike the #PNW at any time. Are you ready for a big earthquake? Take a moment today to remember this great earthquake and think about your own personal preparedness.
Please read the @usgs poster to learn more about the #TohokuEarthquake and #TohokuTsunami: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/eqarchives/poster/2011/20110311.php

Herbert Volcano Caldera — This gorgeous view, taken back in August 2014, is of the summit caldera of Herbert volcano within the Islands of Four Mountains (IFM) in the Aleutian Islands of Alaska. This rarely visited, and little known volcano, shows evidence of youthful eruptions although none are known of in historic time. The small patch of wasting glacial ice at the lower-left has receded in the last few decades to expose active fumaroles (lower-right, light colored patch of ground).
